Its not efficiency, just how much current the traces can handle and basically how much amperage can go through without tripping the OCP.

I see...then why do they rate the +12V rails at 20A each when it's really not that much?

that will support anything. it will support a quad core if you had the money . as long as you have the right motherboard plugs. besides 99.9% of PSU's come with the 4 pin plug and yours even comes with the 8 pin

EDIT: dont be worried about amps. i have my "5200+"(probably uses MORE amps than a normal as its OCed to that level) running on a PSU with 12amps on the 12V rail. DONT worry that PSU is GREAT!

newegg is slow to update there product pages usually. probably only do it when a customer asks them too or when they see someone on a review talk about it.

Because each rail can hold 20A by it self. So you can have one rail at 20A while the other rail has the rest on it, or vice versa.
